The Berkeley neighborhood's best burger bar has two big things going for it: its Jalapeño Mojo Melt, which transcended the argument about whether a burger is a sandwich (and vice versa) to nab our title for Best Hamburger in 2018, and its housemade tater tots, which despite their irregular appearance are cooked so perfectly you'll forget other, lesser, mechanically shaped and frozen homogenous tots. And while you can sub lamb, turkey, chicken, a veggie patty or falafel for any of the sandwiches on the menu, we wholeheartedly recommend sticking to the OG. The burgers and patty melts at this joint are perfectly juicy, beefy and messy, like good ground-beef sandwiches should be.
